Please clarify what software you are using, there is no such thing as portable SAS. Also, post your log including the statements before the problem area.

You haven't answered either of my questions. There is no such thing as portable SAS, what are you using, how is is setup? Are you using University Edition, or Enterprise Guide etc. You haven't posted the log of what is happening before that statement either.

And SAS 9.0 is way beyond old. The oldest SAS version reasonably used is 9.2.
AND POST YOUR LOG!!!!!

One thing to try is to use the right extension:
proc import datafile="C:\Analytixlabs1\5 - Data Exploration (SAS Module 2)\Grocery_coupons.xlsx"

I would try changing the file to a .csv instead of a .xlsx file since SAS may have problems reading in an Excel file with any verison prior to SAS 9.2.
